It's been months since I have posted here. As you no doubt know OWH has completed its mission. The last donation deadline passed back on August 1st and OWH will cease operation completely at (or around) the end of the year. With the exception of this post and likely one or two more at the end of the year I've decide that I won't continue to blog here but will instead move on... a New Year will find me in a new spot — HandmadeByPaula.com — with the goal of trying some new and exciting things. I hope you'll consider joining me there when the time comes.
While my card making has slowed down significantly in the past couple of years as OWH has started to wind down I can say with certainty that arts, crafts and design (I am a professional graphic designer by day) has always been at the foundation of my life and that won't change.
I've have been making some cards to exchange with friends in my card making group and when I spotted the card making contest being sponsored by MFT (My Favorite Things) I simply could not resist the chance to unpack all my stuff and spend an afternoon playing. These cards are what I created.
Die-Namics: Layered Rose & Blueprints 1 ~ Stamps: Chalkboard Greetings
Stamps: Seasonal Sentiments
I know it's been a big change for so many of the dedicated card makers who made up the OWH family but I do hope that you will join me in believing that when one door closes another will open... seek out new outlets, new ideas... new groups and that no matter what you will continue to keep crafting and creating.
Happy Crafting and enjoy the last few days of summer!
